OPINION: More deeds. Fewer Words

President Cortizo's speech at the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations outlined ideals of a better world after the pandemic. "It involves - said Cortizo - changes in our economic systems, in leadership and governance, transparency, protection and restoration of biodiversity, human rights and social inclusion." Cortizado spoke of building the future we want; deep structural transformations; to combat unemployment with changes in public policies; of "the importance of betting on science, technology and innovation ...". It is a pity that it is beautiful verbiage, but useless, and not because it cannot be done, but because there is not the minimum will to make those changes. It didn't take a pandemic to notice our serious social problems: inequality, especially. The pandemic - yes - has accentuated the difference between being a simple citizen and an official with power. That ideal world of Cortizo may perhaps be possible, but without the political leeches that when they say they want the well-being of their fellow citizens, they are actually talking about themselves and their bank accounts. Mr. Cortizo: if you want to convince us that you aspire to a better world, set an example, and start here in Panama with more deeds and fewer words – LA PRENSA, September 24

Politicians have been giving this same speech, almost word for word, for more than my lifetime. Never do they fulfill any of these ideals, if they did they couldn't give the same speech later on.

Let’s face it: we’ve had more than 6 months of social engineering. Every day we were bombarded with statistics and stories to invoke fear and compliance of decrees. For what? According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the overall mortality rate for the new SARS coronavirus causing COVID-19 is about 0.6 percent, although some scientists say it is lower, while others estimate it can be as high as one to two percent in some parts of the world. Compared to Ebola with a 50 percent mortality rate; for smallpox, at 30 percent; tuberculosis at 20 to 70 percent; diphtheria at 5 to 10 percent; or the 1918 influenza pandemic with a 2.5 percent mortality rate, COVID-19 is near the bottom of the infectious diseases mortality scale with a less one percent mortality rate in most countries. Those at highest risk for complications and death include the elderly and those with one or more poor health conditions. The CDC recently reported that only six percent of COVID-19-related deaths were solely due to coronavirus infection and 94 percent of the people who died also had influenza or pneumonia; heart, lung or kidney disease; high blood pressure; diabetes, or another underlying poor health condition. Now we’re told the only way is to accept vaccine. I can hardly wait to see how the CDC/WHO will fake the effects of the vaccine to make it look like a success. What they don’t realize is that they have lost so much credibility that people won’t believe them or their models or their statistics. Yet the WHO (aka Bill Gates, GAVI, CCP, et all) are still banking on a forever annual income from Covid vaccine or its spawned mutations so they need to convince at least the health officials in all countries that the “vaccine is working”. Committing these crimes on the people is a walk in the park for public health agencies and governments. And appointing official mouthpieces to continue to carry lies to the public is as easy as training little Faucis to sit up and bark. A president has to consider what is to be his legacy: will it be that he destroyed prosperity for his people through failed social engineering policies (despite all the virtue signaling phrases used in some international address) or will his legacy be more than hallow words? I guess we have to wait and see.
